    Can anyone explained how Battle Order work....

    Does BO enhance your base life only ?

    or does it enhance +vita(vendungo), life from charm ? life from shako/BK Ring ?

    as far as i know, it enhances whatever your max lifeball is... If its 1000 normally but 1600 with charms, then it enhances the 1600.

    BO enhances your base life, along with any straight +life attributes (vita charms, BK ring, etc) from items. It does not increase +vitality or +% health attributes (like Verdungo's and Enigma), instead adding them to the total it gets from multiplying the previous amounts.

    Thank you... but...

    I am confused because some other people say exactly the opposite thing....that it enhance base life + vita Bonus ...

    Can anyone else verify this ?

    It works as Halciet said. For example if you socket your IK helm with two IO runes (like I foolishly did) it increases your final life by 80 regardless if you use BO or not.

    Not quite complete. BO does not add to any Life or Mana increases from :
    1. + to Energy or Vitality.
    2. +% to Life or Mana.
    3. + life per level, or + mana per level.

    Otherwise Shako and BK ring would be quite useful for a Barb, so to answer your original question life from Shako and BK ring are not enhanced.
    Just to clarify, BO does enhance points you spend on Vitality, not items that give vitality, such as annihilis charm or War travellers. Thats why people try to spend points in vitality and get items that add strength. And of course + life charms will be enhanced.

    Note also there is a bug when your merc levels the BO ends, but the life meter does not shrink so it looks like your merc has only half health which he kind of does, and his screen will show life 1400/3000 and will not go up. Anyway just recast.

    Hal,
    I just saw your post. I just tested +life per level 2 days ago. It does not get boosted by BO. I do not have a BK ring, but it is +life per level so it would not get enhanced. Can anyone with a BK ring verify this ?

    Aye, sorry for the confusion on that, + life per level, +% life, and +vitality don't work with BO, but the rest is fine. I wrote up a "what works with BO" thread a month or so ago with everything listed correctly, but got muddled posting tonight.

    Thanks...one more question though

    Can I assume Jah Rune's 5% to Max Life Bonus works exactly like BO ?

    that it enhances everything BO enhances ?

    I believe so, yes, though I don't have my disk here to log in and check for sure.
